How to Clean Granite Countertops
To keep your granite countertops looking beautiful for years to come, you'll need to clean them regularly with non-abrasive materials. Wipe up spills immediately to avoid staining, and use Simple Green Stone Cleaner to give your counters the look and cleanliness your kitchen deserves.
- Spray Simple Green on the countertop. For heavy grime and grease, apply full strength Simple Green and let soak for a minute or more. For general cleaning & daily care, dilute about 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of Simple Green to 1 cup of water.
- Scrub, if necessary. Use a sponge or non-abrasive cloth for a thoroughly clean, residue-free surface without scratching your counters.
- Wipe & rinse with clean water. Thoroughly wipe down the counter with a damp sponge, non-abrasive cloth or paper towel to ensure a residue-free surface.
- Optional: Dry and polish. For extra shine on your granite counters, follow your cleaning with Simple Green Stone Polish. Give the countertops a final wipe-down with a non-abrasive cloth or paper towel for a sparkling clean, streak-free surface.
When in doubt about a surface, always spot test a small, non-prominent area first such as the underside of the ledge on your counter.
